Sometimes we scientists and science communicators find ourselves engaged in public controversy. GE crops certainly generate significant controversy in some settings. As scientists and science communicators, perhaps our most important task is to assure that the science underlying the controversy is adequately presented. This provides a foundation for people to make their own values-based choices, informed by the science for those that seek it. Towards this end, analogies that help teach basic scientific aspects of GE crops will be demonstrated. Specific practices that can ease emotional tensions will be demonstrated and discussed. In one or more cases, audience participation will be invited as part of the demonstration. In reducing tensions, more thoughtful, productive, and respectful exchanges are possible.
Scientists and science communicators, including undergraduate and graduate students; agronomists and other crop production specialists; crop producers; members of advocacy groups and other NGOs; government representatives.
